Vital substances:
Dried applies contain the same nutrients as fresh apples, only in a concentrated form. Dried fruits are indispensable for a balanced diet. The saying “an apple a day keeps the doctor away“ has been around since 1866. The pectin contained in apples has made them useful in old household remedies for intestinal complaints. Apples have always been regarded as a life prolonging elixir. Today we know that they are healthy and rich in vitamin C [1 and 2].

Dried appel have a very high antioxidant capacity of around 6881 µmol TE (ORAC value = Oxygen Radical Absorption Capacity).

The body’s defence mechanisms are strengthened by foods rich in antioxidants, and this helps to neutralise excessive production of free radicals. The recommended ORAC daily requirement is between 5000 and 7000 [3].

Description:
Our organic Fairtrade apple cubes are uniformly cut into pieces up to max. 1cm in size, with the nutritious skin, but without any pit pieces. The taste is very fruity and slightly sweet. They are yellowish to orange throughout. They have a soft consistency.

Origin and Production:
We source our organic Fairtrade apple cubes exclusively from Uzbekistan.
Large parts of the region are certified for organic and FAIRTRADE products, and are cultivated by the FAIRTRADE farmers living there. The farmers are part of a large Fairtrade community made up of 3 groups, Dustkul Bogi, Turkiston Gulba and Turob Bobo. 1,000 farmers and their families belong to the community. By working with Fairtrade, the farmers can provide their families with a secure income and offer their children new opportunities.

After harvesting, the apples are washed, pitted and cut into cubes and then gently dried using solar energy. The drying process is very eco-friendly, using a solar drying method that has a minimal impact on the product.

The apple cubes are pressure treated in Austria. During the pressure process, the combination of pressure and time ensures that the product is completely free of pests.
